Yes, you're right.

Hmm, perhaps we could use the spring authoring functionality (like we do
for setting up Cocoon) and provide some element (don't quote me on the
syntax right now, this is just a rough idea):
<bean name="my.pac.kage.NiceGenerator">
  ..<!-- Configuration -->..
  <cocoon:sitemap-component name="nice" label="content"/>

I think this is possible by creating a proxy around the generator with
the special sitemap support.
